Awesome discovery, Moh. There are lots of inmates on that list who are at the Tenth Circuit, so I guess that Oklahoma's death chamber should be kept rather busy over the next eighteen months or two years. But we know they can handle it. Back at the start of 2001, Oklahoma executed eight inmates in less than a month. It was apparently such a special occasion that the BBC was induced into writing an article about it. 1 1/9 Jack Clark TX Lethal injection 2 1/9 Eddie Trice OK Lethal Injection 3 1/11 Robert Glock FL Lethal Injection 4 1/11 Wanda Jean Allen OK Lethal Injection 5 1/16 Floyd Medlock OK Lethal Injection 6 1/18 Alvin Goodwin TX Lethal Injection 7 1/18 Dion Smallwood OK Lethal Injection 8 1/23 Mark Fowler OK Lethal Injection 9 1/25 Billy Ray Fox OK Lethal Injection10 1/29 Caruthers Alexander TX Lethal Injection11 1/30 Loyd Lafevers OK Lethal Injection12 2/1 D.L. Jones OK Lethal InjectionAs an aside, I want to point out that the webpage to which you linked says that Oklahoma uses vecuronium bromide as the second, sedative drug. To the best of my knowledge, every other state uses pancuronium as their sedative. (Anybody aware of another state which employs vecuronium?) The two drugs are very similar, and for the intents and purposes of lethal injection are effectively interchangeable:There are two chemical differences between these two drugs. The first should be fairly easy for anyone to spot, including those without a scientific background. The second is more complex (think geometric isomerism, stereochemistry, chirality, etc). Anyone know?
